Silly question about Speed Shine

How old can Speed Shine be and still be good? I know there is nothing in it that will go bad per sť, but there are some volatile compunds in it that will evaporate over time leaving behind something which is not very useable as a quick detailing spray.

Most folks probably use it up so fast there is nothing left to go bad;-)

Has yours solidified or coagulated yet?

When left standing for a while, it separates in to different layers of various densities and shades of blue, but after a good shake looks good as new. Just haven't tried to use it in a while

If it only had that nice fruity smell of the Meguiar's NXT products...

Mein Auto:
The separation of particulate is normal, you're seeing the carnauba floating to the top. Just shake it up.


I've notice that it does discolor over time as well. I've had no bad experience with "Sun baked" discolored Speed Shine.

I did have problems with speed shine that froze. Or maybe I just didn't like the old formula and I decided the old bottle must have frozen in the detached Chicago garage. I doubt that was the problem you had though . . .
